Amazing real young riders playing tough ball in ponies in Spain

Today, I propose this friendly, but tough horseball match taken place in Palencia (Spain) between Spaniard and French kids on Saturday July 18th, 2010.

Here is the link in youtube:

The video is superb.

Like basketball on horseback. Very interesting. I never knew that something like that even existed.

Very fun! What a great way to develop balance independent of the hands!

Even I might be able to pick up the ball if I could ride a short horse (pony)!

Here in France, horses are advertised as and more expensive if they are "horse ball" players. :)

Kind of like in-hand polo, wish there were more sports like this in the US
